    After leftists complained that the Nigerian health practitioner would not have been suspended if she “was white”, the doctor was given permission to return to her work at the British National Health Service (NHS).

    The mother of a boy who died told British daily Metro that she was angry at the decision to reinstate the Nigerian doctor.

    Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba was struck off in January after being convicted of gross negligence manslaughter, because she had mishandled the case of six-year-old Jack Adcock.

    The Nigerian won her appeal, as the court unanimously ruled that she should be restored to the medical register and that a previous punishment of a year’s suspension was sufficient. In 2015, Bawa-Garba had been sentenced to two years in prison suspended for two years at Nottingham Crown Court.

    Jack, who had Down’s syndrome and suffered from a heart condition – died at Leicester Royal Infirmary in 2011 after he developed sepsis.

    The judge noted that Jack’s mistreatment had included a misdiagnosis from the paediatrician. The Nigerian doctor had also marked him as “do not resuscitate” after confusing him with another patient.

    According to the Guardian, the Indian president of the British Association of Physicians, said the case had exposed “issues of diversity within medical malpractice claims”.

    “We believe that if [Bawa-Garba] was white she would not have landed in this spot – we are very clear about it,” Mehta said. “There are so many other cases where this has happened and other people got nothing, while black and minority ethnic doctors get punished.”
